Qatar Airways to add additional frequency to Kathmandu from September
August 31, 2017: Qatar Airways will add an additional daily flight on its Doha – Kathmandu route from September 1, to meet high demand during Nepal’s festival season, which takes place every year in September and October.
The additional frequency will be served by an Airbus A320. The added flight will accommodate passengers travelling to Nepal for its annual festival season, which features many large parades and outdoor fairs offering traditional Nepalese music and a colourful atmosphere.
With the additional daily flight starting on September 1, the Doha-based airline will offer four daily flights between Doha and Kathmandu, providing its passengers even more flexibility when travelling to Nepal.
Visitors to Kathmandu can spend the day wandering among the famed temples and relics of this ancient city, soaking up its atmosphere and enjoying an exhilarating feast for the senses.

This additional daily flight will allow our passengers even more opportunity to experience Kathmandu, a captivating city that draws travellers from all over the globe.”
The airline recently added additional flights to Colombo and Dhaka, to accommodate increased demand to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
An exciting year for the airline continues with a total of 26 new destination launches set to take place throughout the rest of 2017 and into 2018, with new flights to Canberra, Australia; Chiang Mai, Thailand; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; San Francisco, US; and Santiago, Chile, to name a few.
